Guanabana, or Soursop, is a tropical fruit found found throughout Latin America, and many parts of Southeast Asia. It is often the base for many sweet dishes in these areas, but has many uses. Herbal medicine and recipes involve soursop as well, as it has been claimed to be instrumental in fighting cancer, relieving distressed stomachs, fevers, pains, and respiratory conditions. I grew up very familiar with it because of my Salvadoran background, and was always able to find it in the frozen fruits section of my local supermarket growing up in South Florida.
